Manufacturing Hysteria: A History of Scapegoating, Surveillance, and Secrecy in Modern America / Jay Feldman

Availability: Out of stock
Hardback 378 Pages
£10.00

A vital, engaging, and sometimes troubling story of modern America’s struggle to live up to its ideals. In this ambitious and wide-ranging history, Jay Feldman takes us from the run-up to World War I and its anti-German hysteria through the September 11 attacks and Arizona’s current anti-immigration movement. What we see is a striking pattern of elected officials and private citizens alike using the American people’s fears and prejudices to isolate minorities (ethnic, racial, political, religious, or sexual), silence dissent, and stem the growth of civil rights and liberties.
